Open Mic Night


After five great events now the Open Mic in The Paxton Centre is starting to really take shape and gather momentum.

At the last event we had 14 acts and a great range of singer-songwriters and spoken word, and just as importantly, a really appreciative audience !

Come along to listen and enjoy !

We welcome.... Musicians, singers, poets, comedians, actors, spoken word (we're open to random acts as well ! )

To get more info and request a slot please get in touch with Joe at, if possible with an audio/video/written sample of your work. (So far the slots have been oversubscribed, so get in touch asap - slots not guaranteed until you've heard back -

we aim to create a varied programme with new and regular acts

Free entry for performers plus 1 half-price drink. Some open mic slots may be available on the night.

Our bar will be open from 7pm to 11pm serving wines, local beers, hot and soft drinks, light snacks and Open Mic starts from 8pm.
